Giulia was an excellent host, who guided us around areas of Venice we had not previously visited. She took us to several small restaurants and introduced us to Venician, eating and drinking. Also she was a great source of information and full of tips for our continued vacation.

Enjoyed the experience with Loris. Here gave us a nice history of Venice as we walked the streets. The aperitivo experience and selection was nice along with his knowledge of wine and culinary expertise. Visited some places we'd probably would have passed as a typical tourist.
